Brad’s Status – Trailer 1 – Ben Stiller

Brad's Status Brad’s Status stars Ben Stiller as Brad Sloan… or any other Ben Stiller movie, since he never changes.

Here, he’s a father to a son Troy (Austin Abrams), who’s checking out colleges on the East Coast, but along the way he meets up with old friends, including Craig Fisher (Michael Sheen) and Jason Hatfield (Luke Wilson), who’ve all done far better than him and, thus, make him feel inferior about his life’s choices.

The ‘status’ side of it comes from everyone updating Facebook, telling the world how wonderful their lives are.

Brad’s Status… er… updates (sigh) on September 15th in the US, but as of yet, there’s no UK date. Hopefully, it’ll be updated to ‘cancelled’, since it looks quite dull. That said, it’s an Amazon movie, so it’ll most likely be simultaneously available everywhere.

Then again, writer/director Mike White also made the brilliant 2002 Jennifer Aniston comedy drama, The Good Girl, so I’m conflicted…

Also stars: Jenna Fischer, Jemaine Clement, Shazi Raja, Luisa Lee
